 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello, well I'm developing a system to get the temperature but I need put 20 sensors but the distance its too long, so I was trying with cat 5 ethernet cable, first I try with 3 sensor on each wire (using one wire) but I lost many data, so I try with 2 sensors in each wire, and I'm using 220ohm resistors but its change depending the long of the wire, is this ok or what can I do.

Put the computer closer to the data,   and use some other means of transmission.

If you want better answers you should provide more detail as to your topology and how long your cables are.
